Make Them Suffer Drop Off “Octane Accelerator Tour”

Make Them Suffer have dropped off SiriusXM’s “Octane Accelerator Tour.” The band were unable to make the trek due to immigration issues.

The group commented:

“It’s no secret that we’ve not yet made it to a show on the ‘Octane Accelerator Tour‘. Unfortunately we have had some serious setbacks with immigration, and were unable to secure the visas we needed in time for these shows with Ice Nine Kills, Fit For a King, Light the Torch & Awake at Last.

Touring internationally can be full of pitfalls for musicians, and immigration difficulties and UCIS delays for artists entering the United States are nothing new. We’ve tried everything in our power to fix this problem but unfortunately it’s completely out of our hands.

For our fans in the US, fear not, we will return in 2020, and we’ll be doing it with a new album under our belts & visas in hand. – Sean, Nick, Booké, Jaya & Jordan“

Gorod Drop Off U.S. Tour With Psycroptic, Cannabis Corpse, & Micawber

Gorod have been forced to drop off their U.S. tour with Psycroptic, Cannabis Corpse, and Micawber. The band were unable to make the trek due to visa issues.

Gorod commented:

“Dear American fans,

Bad news today,

We will finally not take part in the US tour with Psycroptic, Cannabis Corpse and Micawber which will start the 12th of April in NY.

In spite of having started the visa process as soon as the tour was booked in October 2018, hiring US lawyers with the huge costs incurred, the US Immigration Service (USCIS) only delivered us the permission to visa application (ICS) last Monday night, so less than 3 days before our departure from France.

But this authorization came too late because it is only a first step to obtain visas. We must then complete forms and submit them to the American Embassy in Paris with whom we must make individual appointments (first appointment available on April the 23rd) to obtain the final visa approval. Once the embassy gives its consent, passports and physical visas are finally shipped back by post.

All of these procedures take too long for us to start the tour on time.
We’re currently trying to do our best to join the tour later but for now but this will cost us even more money because as we didn’t get proper visa’s denial, no insurance will reimburse anything, plus we will have to face new last minute logistic and administrative fees which can push up the limits of our means too far.

From now on, we have no other choice than canceling the whole thing but we’ll keep you in touch in case we figure out any last minute solution!

We are extremely disappointed by the complexity and the delays that are constantly being pushed back to get these visas and sincerely sorry for all the people who wanted to see us, moreover for the package that would have been particularly great…

Know that we will not give up to come see you guys despite this disastrous situation. We know that we have a faithful audience for more than 13 years in the USA and we will do our best to come back there.

Soreption Drop Off Suffocation, Cattle Decapitation, Etc. Tour

Soreption have been forced to drop off Suffocation’s final tour with Frank Mullen due to visa issues. The band were supposed to serve as the opening act on the trek, which also features Cattle Decapitation and Krisiun. Visceral Disgorge will be taking their place.

Soreption commented:

“To our fans in North America, unfortunately the visa issues that forced us to depart Summer Slaughter early have still not resolved themselves and we are forced to step down from the upcoming Suffocation Death Chopping Tour.

We were excited to join our good friends on this tour as well as get our new music out to our fans so this is a disappointment for us. We ask our fans to support the tour and the other artists on tour including Visceral Disgorge who will be taking our place in the lineup.

This tour is sure to kill and should not be missed! Don’t worry, as soon as this is cleared up we’ll be getting out to you to celebrate the release!”

Suffocation added:

“Unfortunately due to Visa Issues Soreption is forced to step down from the tour. Taking their place in the lineup will be Visceral Disgorge. We wish the best to Soreption but we know that Visceral Disgorge will not disappoint!”

All tickets will be honored. Please stand by as we will announce new performance dates in the next few days!”

Cradle Of Filth Have Resolved Their Visa Issues & Are On Their Way To Kickoff Their North American Tour

CRADLE OF FILTH ARE ON THEIR WAY TO SEE ALL THEIR US FANS!! The band will be flying out Saturday to begin the tour in Charlotte Sun 31st Jan. CRADLE OF FILTH would like once again apologise to everyone who were intending to see the band at the four cancelled shows this week in the U.S. The cancellation, ironically, was mainly down to the slow return of Dani's visa from the American Embassy in London, rather than the brutal weather. Dani has now received his visa after an agonising wait. We're utterly utterly sorry for the cancellations, but it has been something that has been totally out of the band's hands. We can only hope that the rest of the tour will be as amazing as planned. Thanks once again for your understanding and see you out on the road! #Cradleoffilth #US #canada #inquisitionaltourture #danifilth
